Wellington region maintenance programme

Information about roadworks in the Wellington and Kāpiti regions

Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Plan ahead as roadworks on the state highway network may affect your journey times.

Below is a quick outline of major works planned for Sunday 10 December - Saturday 16 December 2017. We have regular updates on local radio stations.

NOTE: Weather or other factors may cause roadworks to be postponed to the next suitable day or night.
